Medical ceramics is well-established in dental and orthopedic implants and provides a large number of patients with problem free tooth and bone replacements. According to NanoMarkets, medical ceramics represents a key opportunity in the medical materials market over the next few years.
Increasing number of prostheses for hip replacement contain metal ceramic composites. As a result, bioceramics and their metal composites offer potential treatment options for long segmental bone defects. It is estimated that in the future, orthopedic implants will come to depend on scaffold-guided bone tissue.
